Out in the hallway. The pretty thing with the finger paint all over her shirt. She’s been here since her father was brought into the ER yesterday morning. She won’t go home until Stanton is safely apprehended. ” Scully inadvertently glanced at Barrett’s huge hands. She wondered if Mulder was thinking the same thing. In hands like those—who didn’t break easily? “This is all too much to take. You have to believe me, he could never have done this. ” Emily Kysdale stared into her cup of coffee as the cafeteria traffic buzzed behind her bowed shoulders.

Emily was shaking horribly, and Scully could see the goose bumps rising on the bare skin of her arms. Scully felt the immediate urge to reach across the steel cafeteria table and touch her, to let her know that it would be all right—but she resisted. The truth was, it wasn’t going to be all right. Emily’s father had murdered a woman about the same age as she, a woman with a child and a husband. Even if the violence was caused by an allergic reaction, or a mental illness, or an uncontrollable fit—it was murder.

Her jeans and paint-splotched T-shirt were rumpled, and it was obvious she had not slept since the incident. Her agony was no doubt triggering something deep inside Mulder—perhaps memories of his own sister. He carried Samantha Mulder like an internal scar, always just below the surface of his skin. The unique circumstances of Samantha’s disappearance—and Mulder’s belief that she had actually been abducted by aliens—did not disrupt the prosaic and sincere nature of his pain. It was what drove his obsession with the unexplained, and Emily’s distress would only solidify his resolve to find the truth—however fantastic that truth turned out to be.
